ASL LAW continuously advised JB Financial Group on a strategic investment contract with OKXE

At the end of the first quarter of 2024, JB Financial Group (JBFG) announced the signing of a strategic investment contract to invest in OKXE – a South Korean startup with a motorcycle trading platform in Vietnam. ASL LAW is honored to continue to advise JB Financial Group on this M&A deal.

According to the announcement, JBFG and JB Investment will jointly acquire shares of OKXE with a total ownership percentage of 8%. Following the strategic investment agreement in the financial platform Infina in March, this is the first time JBFG has invested in a second financial technology company in Vietnam. The goal of this cooperation deal is to strengthen the securities business sector through partnerships with mobile platforms.

JB Securities Vietnam (JBSV), a subsidiary of JBFG, is expected to collaborate with OKXE to expand its customer base through marketing strategies and sales promotion. Additionally, both parties plan to utilize OKXE’s platform for JBFG to enter the Vietnamese financial market and leverage new business synergy opportunities in Vietnam and when OKXE expands to Cambodia.

With financial investment from JBFG, OKXE is expected to have the necessary resources to maintain its position as a bridge between the financial ecosystem and motorcycle users in Vietnam. As motorcycles continue to play a major role in transportation in Vietnam, this collaboration marks the potential for development, providing convenient and cost-effective transportation options for the people.

For JBFG, collaborating with OKXE will help establish their presence in the Vietnamese market, which is particularly important as many South Korean startups actively expand and enter this market. JB Financial Group stated that they have plans to expand the customer base for JBSV Securities and enhance global competitive advantage for the group through cooperation in the Southeast Asia region.
